Art Every Day, Thursday, February 7, 2013
Not an admonition, simply a suggestion. I read an article the other day by a young man who espouses, just as I do, that to be truly happy in life, we need to discover what turns us on, what brings us joy, and live in that direction. This morning, I just needed to write while quilting and this was on my mind.
I like this piece, the gentle direct complement of the yellow green tone with the more intense red violet. I also like the quilted leaves playing against the bold geometric of the squares and black and white stamped print. The print really adds a lot of interest and becomes the focal points with the words as counterpoint. Even though the leaf stitch is showy, it doesn't seem to be competing with anything.
A good morning, hope you have one too.
